Metric

Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) Assessment. 

Goal

ELA:
By May 2020, at least 85% of ALL students in grades 1-5 will score above the 50th percentile in ELA as measured by trimester MAP assessments.

Math:
By May 2020, at least 85% of ALL students in grades 1-5 will score above the 50th percentile in Math as measured by trimester MAP assessments.

Science:
By May 2020, at least 85% of ALL students in grade 5 will be level 3 or above in the area of science, as measured by annual SBA assessment.

Action Plan

This year, the Roosevelt master schedule will include a minimum of 35 minutes at every grade level for intervention time.  The intervention time will allow teachers and support staff to move students around within the grade level to differentiate our instruction and meet the individual learning needs of our students.

ELA:

  1. Kindergarten and First grades will use the Read Well (as a pilot) and Wonders to improve phonemic awareness and decoding skills.  DIBELS progress monitoring will occur 2 times per month to ensure adequate growth over time.
  2. Certificated teachers will provide direct instruction using Read Well and Wonders curriculum (K, 1) to students who require the most intensive level of support.  Students will be grouped into groups of no more than 5 students during intervention time.
  3. First, Second, and Third grades will use the Daily 5 Framework to differentiate their instruction within the Wonders Curriculum for core instruction.
  4. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 who are currently below the 50th percentile will be served in groups of no more than 5 students by the Title I intervention team.  Materials will emphasize decoding and fluency strategies and will very depending on the need of each small group.
  5. Teachers at grades 3, 4, and 5 will integrate social studies and science curriculum into their ELA studies so that students see an increase in the amount of non-fiction reading material.

Math:

  1. Third, Fourth, and Fifth grades have been trained in, and will implement Concept Quests in the classroom in order to differentiate their instruction and provide opportunities for students to go deeper with content within the Bridges Curriculum.

Science:

  1. Third, Fourth, and Fifth grades will pilot Next Generation Foss Science kits this year.  The Foss pilot is supported by Foss curriculum experts and our OSD Science TOSA. This will double the amount of science instruction that has traditionally taken place in our school and ensure our students are taught according to current content standards.
